We’re bringing back Lady Bird for this Throwback Thursday, in honor of another coming-of-age film, Booksmart! The film earned five Academy Award® nominations including Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actress, Best Supporting Actress and Best Screenplay. Beanie Feldstein plays the lovable best friend to Saoirse Ronan’s “Lady Bird”, and in Booksmart, she is the best friend and co-star to Kaitlyn Dever (Laggies,Short Term 13). Make it a Beanie Feldstein double feature this weekend!
The film features score by Jon Brion, composer to some of Hollywood’s most memorable and beloved films (The Break-Up, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Punch Drunk Love). Listen to his score below!
People who didn’t get a chance to catch Lady Bird in theaters can now stream Greta Gerwig’s heartwarming Academy Award-nominated film now at Amazon Prime! Fair warning: keep a box of tissues nearby. The film was one of the most celebrated film releases of 2017, starring Saoirse Ronan, Laurie Metcalf and Timothee Chalamet!
Like a snowflake, no two mothers are alike. Grace And Frankie (watch it on Netflix) are two of our favorite on-screen moms currently smoking up the screen (sometimes literally) and changing everything we thought we knew about the idea of the modern female parental unit. Played by Jane Fonda (“Grace”) and Lily Tomlin (“Frankie”), this critically acclaimed duo are total crack ups that you just want to hang out with. Put on the soundtrack or send it to your mom. It’ll put a smile on your face. Who are your favorite TV or movie moms? See more below.

The good folks over at Noisey recently caught up with Lady Birdcomposer Jon Brion. By now, you may have read a lot about his work as a composer, but this interview digs into his other work as a musician and music producer to provide a richer understanding of Brion’s background. If you’re familiar with Beyonce, Kanye West, Best Coast, Fiona Apple, Frank Ocean or Sky Feirrera (he’s collaborated with them), then you’ll want to read on now at Noisey.
